At least it looks like him.
It does look like him. I would guess that he has a side arm with him.
It is Roosevelt.
You can read about it here - Ransom E Olds is the driver:

It is a 1907 Reo 2 cylinder touring. The defining features of a 1907 is the brass band over the radiator and the affixed "Reo" name on the front of the radiator shell.
Actually there was no separate radiator shell on 2 cylinder Reo's. The hood and radiator shell all one piece. In 1907 only, they added the brass band over the radiator area with some brass trim as well, and the "Reo" name plate. Interesting fact, the radiator filler shown in the photo is a fake. Us Reo owners use it as a match holder for the gas headlights. This filler is riveted on to the hood for looks only.
WOW, what a cool, historic picture! Probably bodyguards with and behind him?
brasscarguy has it pegged exactly. hey brasscarguy I take it you didn't go to Hershey this year either, Well neither did I, I'm still sittin here at home reading the forum. Incidentally I just snagged a paid of 1909 T rear axle housing on ebay at a very good price
Nice pointers on the '07, Guy. I recall that being the last year for wooden fenders. '08 they were metal.
I always enjoy Herb's pictures.
Correct, Richard, last year for wooden fenders and beautiful Atwood brass
Everything I ever learned about Reo's came from Mr Dale Kemmerer. He is a living encyclopedia of Reo facts and knowledge. After spending a lot of time in his presence I now own 2 early Reo's.
Wife made me go to Washington DC, for the Seahawks game last Monday night. Then she is taking me to the formula 1 race in Texas the end of this month. So Hershey is out this year. Just returned today from DC and the weather for the rest of the week is lots of rain and thunder storms from a slo moving cell. We both know what rain means in Hershey. Been there and done that.
